Effect of global warming and Climate change

GLOBAL warming and climate change refer to an increase in average global temperatures.  Natural events and human activities are believed to be contributing to an increase in average global temperatures.  Global warming, as stated in many publications and journals, is the increase in the average temperature of Earth’s near-surface air and oceans since the mid-20th century and it is projected to continue.  Most of the observed temperature increase since the middle of the 20th century was caused by increasing concentrations of Greenhouse Gases, which results from human activity such as deforestation and the burning of fossil fuel, for example, gas flaring.  Greenhouse gases are gases in an atmosphere that absorb and emit radiation within the thermal infrared range.  This process is the fundamental cause of the greenhouse effect (the rise in temperature on Earth as certain gases in the atmosphere trap energy).
